Call our Rochester, MN dentist office at 507-316-6444 to schedule your appointment.

What Happens at Your Dental Exam & Cleaning

Here is what new patients can expect at a dental exam and cleaning appointment:

  • A 30-minute meeting with one of our doctors during which they will examine your teeth and mouth, get your medical and dental history, and get a full set of digital X-rays. They’ll discuss your concerns and recommend any follow-up treatments that may be needed.
  • An oral cancer screening, during which we’ll look for early signs of oral cancer.
  • A thorough, hour-long cleaning with one of our dental hygienists.

We Use the Latest Technology for Your Dental Exam

Our dentists still use dental probes and mirrors to examine your family’s teeth. But now we use high-tech tools too! Among them:

  • Digital radiography. It takes us less time to get digital images of your mouth, so you spend less time in the patient chair. No more waiting for the film to develop!
  • CariVu cavity detector. This tool lets our dentists actually look at the interior of your teeth, where they can spot cavities and other problems.

Don’t miss a dental checkup. Biannual dental exams and dental cleanings are an important part of keeping your mouth healthy!

Call our Rochester, MN dentist office at 507-316-6444, or use our online form to schedule your family’s appointments.

Dr. Jim Gores is a member of the American Dental Association, Minnesota Dental Association, and local dental societies.
